Flying the Flag for Neston - in Antarctica!

A number of flags designed for ‘Antarctica Day' by the pupils at Neston Primary School are now on display at the post office at Port Lockroy, Antarctica.
The flags were created as part of the school's Polar Explorer Programme and were inspired by the co-operation shown by the countries who work together to protect and explore Antarctica.

Sammie Buzzard of the British Antarctic Survey said: "When visitors to Port Lockroy post their letters and postcards, they will see the Neston pupils' impressive artwork."
Gill O'Hara, Science Leader at Neston Primary School, added: "It is fantastic that the flags we produced have travelled over 8775 miles, from Neston to Antarctica. It's just a shame that we can't organise a school trip to see the flags in situ!
"We would like to thank everyone at STEM Learning, our STEM Ambassador Sue Andrews and The British Antarctic Survey Team for their help with this project."
